Well this list has a serious need for speed. Hopefully with beasts this list will get turn 1 assaults on enemy gun lines. Can run circles around blocks and will be able to hold its own against enemy cav lists. I am still very new to WFB so let me know what you think.

Nice.

Against high Toughness armies, and those fielding large blocks of rank and file though, I dont know - your army might be lacking a tad there.


Otherwise, I like the list.

Well hopfully with the speed and some magic help I will be flanking like no tommorow with this list. (Thats the plan anyway.) Against high T I am not sure, apart from bears anger on the masque, 8 str 6 AP attacks at WS 7 baby! I'm not sure what I can do about it. Maybe fire off a hunters spear, which is a 6 str pocket bolt thrower for each of my heralds. Keep in mind the Hounds are str 5 which is not too bad...

nice im guessing the horrors will just sit in the centre casing off magic? and your hounds and fiends will be in the enemys face straight away, nice! will work well against shooty armies! but your laking your blocks n stuff that will win you combats!!

Walshy your may be right, but like i say I hope to get in with two units vs a block, one with flank. If I can not arrainge that my units have enough mobility to simply avoid blocks and pick at them with magic.

Thanks Cheeko.

I know it's not a beat everything list. But WFB is a rock paper sissors game. I think I will build it and see how it runs.

Anyone have any advice on how to make it better ( but still within its speed theme?)

Does anyone consider this an improvment?

Have you considered putting the Heralds on Chariots?

Id consider taking screamers, for starters,..not much versatility here. What if your put against demons with a bloodthirster or HE's with a dragon. Big flying unstoppable monsters will hurt you bad as they will out maneuver you, not go down from magic and pretty much destroy your entire army.

The plan against Big monstors, (admitidly hard against HE and Khorne) was to uses beast cowers. I am not sure what screamers would add to the big flying monstor equasion. The other part of the big flying mon plan was to use wolf hunts on my fiends to match a flyers manuverability, again harder against HE.

Here we go! Try this List. I thought it was a bit too cheesy, but it has the power dice to shove magic down a typical HE or Khorne armies throat. And there are not many lists that are going to out manuver it.

I'd consider dropping the Icons on the horrors. It's not a huge improvement (3+ over 4+ to cast), and as the enemy is near your horrors in short order, you are giving away 300 VP to the enemy.

Otherwise, I can't see much wrong with that list.

Yeah, this is the kind of list I like to play in general (I play wood elves and lizzards a lot) right now I am using a Slaanesh daemon list (with some flesh hounds for muscle). I love to dominate the movement part of the game. One key I have found with this kind of list is to keep thins as cheap as possible (hard with daemons) so, yeah, I would maybe drop the icons and use the points for more troops. Let us know how it works.

Yeah, this is better. More maneuverable and alot more fire power. Maybe you should look into a unit of seekers though, with a siren standard they are excellent at countering other shooting armies.
